Beach
Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming. The area is known for being a lesbian-, gay-, bisexual-, and transgender-friendly community. Consider browsing the boutiques near the water and enjoying refreshments with a view over the beach.

  • You can visit Ogunquit without walk on his beach. Especially beautiful, vast, welcoming at low tide. Beautiful under the Sun, we see the beauty of the top of the Marginal Way. Parking, covered space for those who want to avoid the Sun and enjoy the show that is before their eyes. Less busy off season, of course. Restaurants nearby. Everything for spend a few beautiful hours of relaxation and fun. Sand... a sweet treat for the feet. The place is beautiful.

  • Super long beach, very nice white sand. It's like two beaches in one, at low tide you can walk 200 yards to the ocean, at high tide, it leaves just a skinny strip of white sand. Parking costs money but it's worth spending a few hours here.
  • gr8 for sun rises. To find a parking lot may be pain, just look around or being patient.
  • Beautiful beach, crowded during high tide but always room regardless - worth the visit
  • 20$ parking. But free 30 min stays to see the view and go. Water is too cold for swimming but wadding is fun
  • This is a beautiful beach even during the colder months of the year! I visited on a sunny but chilly October afternoon and the place was pretty much empty - you'll have the beach all to yourself and you can peacefully stroll along the shore, enjoying the white sand and the beauty of the Atlantic merging with the sky above!
